WordPress plugin for activation of the WEDOS Global service.
WEDOS Global (CDN Cache & Security)
The WEDOS Global (CDN Cache & Security) plugin connects your website to the worldwide WEDOS Global infrastructure, providing not only powerful protection against a wide range of cyber-attacks, but also optimizing the loading speed of your pages. WEDOS Global’s infrastructure is built on thousands of servers located in dozens of strategic locations around the world, with total connectivity of thousands of Gbps, which ensures not only higher security, but also unprecedented speed and stability of your website.
What does that mean for you?
Thousands of Servers, Global Reach, CDN Cache: Take advantage of our extensive infrastructure that spreads the load and increases your site’s loading speed, regardless of where your visitors are located. Our servers will serve as a worldwide CDN Cache for your site.
Improving SEO and User Experience: Powerful and fast infrastructure positively affects the SEO ranking of your site in search engines and improves the overall experience for visitors. Thanks to direct connections to local Internet exchange points (IXPs) it is ensured that your site’s data is always as close as possible to your visitors, which guarantees faster and more reliable services. We have a direct link with most major providers.
Thanks to Anycast DNS, your WordPress will respond quickly from the first domain query (DNS) to repeated responses, when we will serve static content directly from our servers in the location of your visitors.
World Class Security with our WAF: Your website is protected through advanced security technologies and constant monitoring, which minimizes the risk of attacks and unauthorized access.
WEDOS Global will protect your WordPress not only from large DDoS attacks, which we eliminate even before they reach you, but also individual attempts to crack the password or search vulnerabilities using Web Application Firewall (WAF).
Our WAF works outside of your WordPress (hosting) because it’s on our servers, so it does not mine your WordPress in any way. This means that all traffic to your website is first screened by our WAF which effectively filters and blocks malicious attempts and attacks before they even get to your site. This protection includes blocking unwanted visits (malicious bots) and attacks such as attempts to break into the system or dangerous scripts without affecting normal visitors to your website or useful robots.
Immediate Access to New Technologies: With our plugin, your website will get automatic access to the latest Internet standards and technologies such as IPv6 and HTTP/3, even if your existing hosting provider does not support these technologies.
Support and Reliability: Our cybersecurity specialists and developers at WEDOS are here for you 24/7 to ensure smooth operation and 24/7 protection of your website.
Privacy and Data Protection: The security of your data is our highest priority. The plugin is designed to protect your information and privacy in accordance with the latest standards.
The plugin meets EU (GDRP) requirements. WEDOS is ISO certified – ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System), ISO 27017 (a set of procedures which maintain information security for cloud services) and ISO 27018 (a set of procedures which protect personally identifiable information within public clouds).
